    yeah not saying it織s bad but a real man struggling & fighting is another thing. I know that you know this but if i was you train with a heavier weight & try lifting areas where you can use leaverage/balance..this is what Judo is about

    Fake black belts

    I get it 100% . where i grew up it was mainly man to man a square go fist fight. There was knives involved but in rare occasions. In the bigger cities like Glasgow ( Scotland ) another thing. much more hard violence.

    Fake black belts

    It織s like where i grew up, you had fist fights with other towns nearby. you knew who could fight & was "game". simple as that. no bull just reality.

    Fake black belts

    not at all a fake is a fake & the original video was about a fake BJJ Black belt who was clearly making money from teaching rubbish. It織s not just about ego it織s in my eyes deceit

    Fake black belts

    yeah ...like i wrote you can do it or you can織t..if you can you are well known as a "doer" anyway. My only problem is the people who say they can & can織t & teach just rubbish..& take money from honest hard working people .

    Yeah back in the day he was Mr America. A clever maybe a bit radical man. was apparantly a Black belt in Judo. Teaching military personnel during his service. I never knew that myself until watching a video today...so i learned something too. he sadly passed away i think this year in 2022.

    I haven織t done it for a long time as i wrote on one post i just do reverse curls. I use an EZ bar. i can honestly say that stick work has helped my grip strength too.."feeling the stick". definetly helped my wrist flexability. It織s like look at the forearms of a guy who in the olden days...

    I like some of the old training systems like in most traditional FMA, no belts just either you can or can織t do it. everyone knows.

    try doing this letting the bar roll down your fingers. you織ll feel it. he was actually curling the bar up high here but still a great workout for the forearms & hands. Most don織t do these though very old school.

    it織s not bad on here..:D but some videos on youtube are just absurd. sorry but some should even be banned as some gullible people might try the stupid training & end up in a spinal clinic with an injury which could plague them for life. But don織t get me wrong, i織ve seen some utter muppets in the...

    This guy is correct about losing muscle as we age & someone on the thread mentioned bone density. I think he needs to watch his diet though, looks overweight. One Form of weight training I've found very useful, & as you'll see this isn't new is a system Bob Gadja used...

    I think that given the competition between schools they're trying to stay ahead of each other with different fancy looking moves. From what I've seen the schools who teach more Single stick are, in my opinion better...or better for me. Competition is never like really fighting but I get your...

    I actually prefer just one stick. I'm not a fan either of the fancy stuff. Not because I can't do it but it's a waste of time in a real fight. Sure it looks impressive in a video but I like to just hit the guy as directly & efficiently as possible. No messing around. PFOOM PFOOM......
